Chiropractic and Pregnancy: reducing pain during pregnancy and trauma during labour.
Many women seek out chiropractic care during their pregnancy to help them manage back pain and postural issues. Lower back pain is one of the most common symptoms women experience during pregnancy. Chiropractic aims to help relieve low back pain and to relax the body.
Many women find that chiropractic helps them during their pregnancy.
- Studies show that over half of all women suffer from back pain during pregnancy (1).
- In a study published in the Journal of the American Chiropractic Association, it was found that 75% of women reported finding relief from pain after receiving chiropractic care (2).
Dr Rosemarie Jabbour (Chiro) has been a chiropractor for over two decades and has helped many pregnant women. If you’re looking for a pregnancy chiropractor in Sydney, look to New World Chiro in Parramatta. Many women feel more comfortable talking with a female chiropractor about their pregnancy. Dr Jabbour (Chiro) understands this.
Pregnancy and chiropractic care: is this right for me?
At New World Chiro we want you to have the best chances of a healthy pregnancy and birth. Chiropractic care is not only a natural way to help relieve symptoms associated with pregnancy (back pain, sciatica, postural problems) it may also provide greater health potential for both mother and baby.
General health benefits to you:
- Reduced joint pain
- Reduced nerve interference
- Better management of lower back pain
- Improved joint flexibility
- Improved posture
During pregnancy, your body changes considerably. These changes include shifts in posture, extra pressures on your spine and nervous system and sometimes, back, hip and foot pain. Chiropractic care during pregnancy often involves a modified, gentler technique that works in harmony with your body. The aim is to increase movement of joints, keep muscles limber and reduce pressure in certain areas.
